The word hope is defined in the Merriam Webster dictionary as to desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment. It seems in my subconscious, I always hope and believe in others. It seems that this hope anchored my soul. That no matter if a storm came and shifted my anchor, I faced a difficult situation or assignment, my soul (heart, mind, and body) would eventually anchor on hope. Hope keeps you steady. I now realize that hope is part of my faith, my belief system.
